Stayed just one night, a double room and single room for my adult son.
The location is beautiful.
On reflection I wish we had booked into a smaller hotel, I found the breakfast experience (buffet style) rather like a posh staff canteen, the evening meal was a better experience. I did hear two customers complain about their main course, but ours was fine and the staff were polite and efficient.
The rooms were on the small size, my son's shower was poor, little power in the morning, but that could of been because everyone was using the hot water at the same time and it is such a large hotel. Our toilet seat was broken, but my husband did manage to fix it, and when we put on the bedside lights we could see cobwebs on the ceiling (not visible in normal light).
Just one very small lift in a huge hotel, being on the third floor we did have a little wait.
Having said all this we would go back, Pitlochry is a great base for a holiday, and the hotel was adequate, but does lack that personal touch.
